Watching Jessie Baylin perform “Hurry Hurry” on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno was sort of like watching Whitesnake’s “Still of the Night” video for the first time on MTV in 1987. What? WHAT? Yeah, see, I remember watching that video and being like, “Wait, is that Rudy Sarzo playing bass? Wait, is that Vivian Campbell playing guitar? Tommy Aldridge on drums? Huh? Supergroup? No way, Adrian Vandenberg on lead guitar?”
Last night, Jessie’s band consisted of The Watson Twins and 3 members of Everest. Of course, unlike that first viewing of “Still of the Night”, I was tipped off via Everest’s Facebook page that they’d be backing Jessie. But, still, very cool to see people from a band you know and love serving as window dressing for another musician.
